Main road set for three-week improvement scheme

Posted on Tuesday 18th February 2020

A dual carriageway leading to a motorway junction in Stafford will be repaired over three weeks starting on Monday, February 24.

Improvement work will take place on the A34 Creswell Link Road, which connects junction 14 of the M6 and the Eccleshall Road with the Stone Road near Redhill.

From Monday March 2 for two weeks there will be night-time road closures and diversions in place so that work can be carried out safely. This work will take place between 8pm and 6am on weeknights only. There will also be temporary lane closures throughout the scheme, which finishes on March 18.

During the summer the road will be resurfaced, with dates to be announced closer to the time. The county council is investing £340,000 in the whole scheme.

Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport Helen Fisher said:

This is a busy stretch of road linking junction 14 of the M6 with the A34 and so we will be carrying out most of the work overnight to minimise disruption.

Following repair work over the next three weeks, our highways team will return in the summer to resurface the road. There will be some lane closures in place from Monday in addition to night-time closures so we would ask people to allow additional travelling time. We’d like to thank people for their patience while work is carried out.”
